Hi Jason. Welcome to justanswer.

Press and hold the PROG (up and down) buttons on the front panel of the Recorder for more than 5 seconds with no disc in the unit. All the settings will revert to factory reset.

Reply if further assistance is required.

I have pressed the both prog buttons on front panel. An option for English language came up. I tried pressing number 1 for English but nothing happened. Also the time and PS Scan are still showing on front display.
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.

Okay. Ensure there's no disc in the device.

Press "Menu" on the remote control to open the on-screen menu.
